Winning Submission

Kappara Villa Makeover: Atmosphere Design

The project is very balanced overall, both in terms of its interior design as well as in the creation of a homely space, as befits a residence. There is clarity of concept resulting in a consistent design throughout the residence with the use of a varied but cohesive material palette which adds colour and texture to the scheme. A winning element of the design is the priority given to natural light permeating within each room of the building, thus accentuating the attractiveness of each space within the home.

Special Commendation

Tigne Duplex Penthouse: Forward Architects

The project very successfully addresses the relationship between the scenic exterior overlooking Marsamxett Harbour and the beautifully designed interior.  Challenges related to the change in levels, which were resolved by using different materials to highlight the different spaces, which then tie in with the design of the rooms within the apartment. The furniture layout of each room allows the residents to enjoy the harbour views while incorporating contemporary amenities. Of note is the infinity edge pool which seems to be almost an extension of the underlying harbour.

Special Commendation

Concrete House: Archi+

Based on a neutral colour palette and muted tonalities, the design of this project draws the eye towards the views of the countryside and the sea beyond.  The use of exposed concrete on the exterior is reflected in the interior, where the successful integration of lighting features highlights the bespoke furniture and fittings which exemplify this project.
